NOBARTV.CO.ID STY take a peek at the strength of potential opponents, Coach U23 Shin Tae-yong plans to watch the match between the Japan vs South Korea national team. One of the two teams is certain to be the opponent for the Garuda squad in the last 8 round of the 23 U2024 Asian Cup.

The Indonesian national team has confirmed its progress to the last 8 of the 23 U2024 Asian Cup. This certainty was obtained by the Garuda squad after crushing the resistance of the team from the Middle East, Jordan, in the final match of Group A last night. In this match, Shin Tae-yong's men slaughtered their opponents with a landslide score of 4-1.

Two of the four goals were scored by overseas player Marselino Ferdinan. Meanwhile, the other two goals were scored by Witan Sulaeman and Komang Teguh's header. Therefore, with this victory, the young Garuda squad now has a total of six points throughout the group phase. This number of points made them finish in second place in the final standings of Group A and accompanied Qatar as group winners to the last 8.

If we refer to the target given by PSSI, the Indonesian National Team's qualification for the last 8 is enough to make the Indonesian Football Federation grant Shin Tae-yong a contract extension. Because previously, Shin was targeted to bring the two age groups of the national team to the knock-out phase. Shin succeeded in qualifying the senior Indonesian national team from the group phase of the 2023 Asian Cup. And last night, the South Korean coach once again brought the U23 Indonesian national team through group A.

But interestingly, Shin seemed reluctant to think about his fate with the Indonesian National Team first. In fact, the coach is currently preparing plans ahead of the quarter-final match. It is known that with the confirmation of the status of the Indonesian National Team as runners-up in Group A, they are also certain to face the winners of Group B.

So far, the winner of Group B cannot be confirmed because the two teams, namely South Korea and Japan, have not played their last match in the group phase. And interestingly, in the final match of Group B tonight, the two teams will face each other. Therefore, whoever wins the match (Japan or South Korea), that team will face the young Garuda squad in the quarter-finals of the 23 U2024 Asian Cup.

On this basis, Shin Tae-yong in his post-match statement already had a plan to monitor the strength of his potential opponents. Shin plans to watch the Japan vs South Korea duel tonight.

"So in the quarter-finals between South Korea and Japan, we don't know who we will play," said Shin Tae-yong.

"However, I will watch the Japan versus South Korea match later and then prepare myself well," he concluded.

The match between Japan vs South Korea itself will be held at the Stadium, Al Rayyan, Qatar, this Monday (22/4) evening at 20.00 WIB.
